Mounting a Videocam or Camera in your Car

You would be surprised at the number of people that would like to use their camera in the car.  With the introduction of cheap easy to use video cameras like the Flip, everyone can shoot a video quickly and inexpensively.  Why use it in your car?  It’s especially popular for family trips.  Driving in the mountains or peeping leaves?  Shoot a video.  Driving next to the ocean?  Shoot a video.  Well you get the drift.

When selecting your camera mount the most important thing is to have a steady mount.  Match the weight of the camera with the sturdiness of the mount.  The heavier the cameras should use mounts made by RAM.  The lighter cameras like the Flip can use some less expensive brands like the ones from MFX2.  The second important question is location.  Most like to use a windshield and there are many suction mounts available for that purpose.  We prefer the dash mount though as it is somewhat safer and does not block your view the way a suction mount may.

And for those who just prefer a motorcycle, there are lots of those mounts too.

Motorcycle Camera Mounts

Mounting a camera or videocam on your motorcycle is easy thanks to all the mounting selections out there.  The choices range from an economy handlebar mount to metal mounts with dampening deatures to ensure your camera does not shake.

Mounting options come in many flavors:  Handlebar, clutch, mirror, stem, screw and even a suction option.

Attaching your camera is easy.  Practically every camera has a threaded hole at the bottom.  The measurements of the threaded hole is generally the same with all cameras (1/4″ – 20).  All motorcycle camera mounts accept this size without a problem. Screw your camera onto the threaded screw and you’re off!
